The EV2HMC8327LG is a fully populated 4-layer evaluation board that allows evaluation of the 81 GHz to 86 GHz HMC8327LG E-band low noise downconverter system-in-package (SiP).
The board assembly includes 4 edge mounted SMA connectors for the differential I and Q mixer outputs as well as a single edge mounted 2.9mm connector for the LO drive input signal. The evaluation board is mounted on an aluminum backplate which includes a standard WR-12 waveguide hole pattern for the E-band signal input.
The board is equipped with LDOs for DC bias and only +5/–5V are needed for powering up the LDOs.
Please refer to the data sheet for detailed biasing requirements and application circuit information.
